jupe the cook and organ 101 part 2


I had a very relaxing day yesterday. I did a lot of reading and even some cooking.

I improvised a black bean hummus since there were no garbanzo beans in the cupboard.

Then I resurrected my old pasta machine to find that it was in bad need of cleaning. This involved  soaking overnight. But it put me in the mood and I made some home made pasta using just a knife to cut it.

I have been itching to try the NYT marinara sauce recipe I bookmarked.

It all turned out very well in my opinion.

These are pics I took with my phone and put up on Facebooger. Most comments were envious. One of my choristers, however, thought the pasta looked “funky.” I guess it does. It tasted good however.

For some reason I goofed around with Facebooger and reached out to some people from the past.  They were either prominent musician/composers I happen to admire .

All of these pictured have instantly reached back and allowed me to “friend” them.

This is kind of fun.

I also spent several hours working on the second part of my “Organ 101” fake power point presentation I am planning to give to my organ committee this evening.


I agonized over these few slides. I couldn’t find an illustration of a bunch of ranks that were 8′, 4′ , and 2′.


So I came up with these.


I’ll link in the whole presentation tomorrow.

I have about 17 of 20 or so slides done. It shouldn’t be too difficult to finish that off today.

I have to get my Mom to the shrink this morning at 9 AM. Come to think of it, I haven’t received a confirmation phone call. But I have turned off my land line and that might be the reason. I really should call and confirm before dragging Mom out.
